Platini: Bale price no issue if…

UEFA President Michel Platini says he sees no problem in Real Madrid paying out €100m to sign Gareth Bale, so long as they can afford it.

Los Blancos are currently in final negotiations with Tottenham for the 24-year-old Welshman and could break the world record for a transfer fee.

Whilst the main instigator behind UEFA’s Financial Fair Play model to curb financial inequality in the game, Platini has said that there is no issue in Madrid’s spending, so long as they can afford it.

“It does not create problems if the buying club can afford to pay,” mused the former Juventus man to L’Equipe today.

“Compare this to if Madrid bought three players for €30m, we would not be discussing anything.

“Now, is Bale worth €100m? That is a debate…”
